Hellooooo out there!!!
Well where have I been??
Really, just working around the house and yard, doing laundry, deep decluttering in the closets and stuff like that. The weather was unbelievably beautiful the last week of June. July has hit with heat and humidity, but so far not untolerably so.
Yesterday and last night I watched the entire mini-series of "Pride and Prejudice" by the BBC. Loved it. Want to watch it again. Want to run off with Colin Firth.
I had read the book a long time ago, but have to admit the intensity of the emotions didn't come through to me then. I thought the entire thing rather silly when I read the book. I was single then, in my mid-twenties, so maybe my stage in life made it less appreciated. Now as a matron (gak) I can see more in the story. Or maybe I can see more in the story because I SAW the story. Or maybe I saw more in the story because the acting was suburb, the music was beautiful, the sets lush, and the chemistry between Elizabeth and Darcy sizzled. *sigh* it's been a long time since I gazed at a movie with such heart felt enjoyment.
It all started when I was flying home from California in May, and watched, "Nanny Mcphee" on the plane. Colin Firth was in that, and cauhgt my attention. Again, he was very engaging, and struck my interest as he played a sweet, sad father of seven.
I then decided to search and find the BBC "Pride and Prejudice", as I had heard it was good, and now had renewed interest in its principle actor. And I am glad I did, and I will probably watch it again Monday while sorting the gi-mongous pile of unmatched socks I have.
Anyway, today we are off to a family party, this time saying goodbye to the brother we just welcomed home. He is off to Las Vegas to take a job in the banking industry. God grant him many years!!
